One of my favorite programmers with a web presence is the enigmatic Why the Lucky Stiff.
I decided to play with his blog software, Hobix. This is how you install Hobix on a Mac:
~ ed$ ruby -ropen-uri -e 'eval open("http://go.hobix.com/0.2f").read' # Readying install... # Beginning gzip transmission. # () () () () o --- (--= _--_ / \ o( -- (---= ~/ / ^ ^/ o. (___ (_(__-= // ///\/\/ you speedy little goat!! you got.. you got.. ahee!! hobix!! # halloo!! ready to install the very latest hobix?? # DON'T BE 'FRAIDY!! nothing scary AT ALL!! (hobix is # whizzzy cool and /everyone/ is holding your hand.) + ready to go + [Y/n] ?
God bless those who don’t take themselves or their software even the slightest bit seriously. Bless them and shower them with chunky bacon.
UPDATE: of course, it crapped out and died trying to create a weblog. Maybe I should have been “fraidy.”
